ATLANTA, Feb. 1, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sciatica pain, a chronic condition affecting the lower back, buttocks and legs, can be successfully managed with early detection and treatment, says Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Jarred Simon. The debilitating pain associated with this condition can force individuals to give up the active lifestyle they love and make it difficult to sleep through the night or even sit comfortably at an office desk during the day, said Dr. Simon. He said chiropractic care targets the root cause for sciatica pain, such as a herniated disc or slipped disc, and treats this problem for long-term pain relief.
Atlanta sciatica patients may benefit from chiropractic care for managing this pain. Atlanta chiropractor Dr. Jarred Simon is raising awareness about the benefits of chiropractic care for diagnosing and treating sciatica pain.
"Sciatica is an incredibly painful condition that can adversely impact an individual's quality of life," said Dr. Simon. "Many individuals think the only viable treatment option is pain medication. The good news is there are effective alternatives to medications. With early diagnosis and chiropractic care, it is possible to return to living a full, active life."
Sciatica pain is typically caused by a spinal misalignment, such as a herniated disc or slipped disc. This disc can place pressure on the sciatic nerve, triggering a radiating or numbing pain sensation along the length of the nerve. The sciatic nerve is one of the longest in the body, stretching from the lower back through the buttocks and legs. Consequently, this herniated disc compression can affect an individual's quality of life as they experience lower back pain, leg pain and buttock pain, said the chiropractor.
"The first step to managing sciatica pain is to determine the root cause for this pain," said Dr. Simon. "This is why if I suspect a spinal subluxation exists, I recommend a full diagnostic evaluation. Once we have identified the root cause for a patient's pain, like a herniated disc, we can begin creating a custom treatment program to successfully alleviate this pain."
Dr. Simon offers a wide variety of spinal manipulation techniques for managing sciatica pain. These techniques include the Thompson Drop, the Activator Method, the Gonstead Technique, S.O.T., and Flexion/Distraction.
"I work closely with each patient to determine the right adjustment technique for their pain management needs," said Dr. Simon. "One of the greatest benefits of chiropractic adjustments is that they are long lasting and directly target the root cause for pain. Consequently, our patients are able to resume a more active lifestyle without worrying about recurring pain."
Dr. Simon has more than two decades of experience providing sciatica pain relief, as well as drug-free, non-invasive whiplash injury treatment and sports injury treatment.
